Pulitzer HIV/AIDS Global Reporting Fellowship
for JHSPH Students and Recent Alumni
Deadline: September 17, 2015
The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting has announced a new journalism fellowship to fund a student-reported international story on HIV/AIDS. The fellowship is open to students at the Center’s university partners, including the Bloomberg School and its Center for Global Health, through its Campus Consortium program. This fellowship is an opportunity to investigate or illuminate the topic of HIV/AIDS from a global perspective with editorial support from the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, an award-winning, non-profit journalism organization. The Center is dedicated to supporting the independent international journalism that U.S. media organizations are increasingly less able to undertake. Its focus is on under-reported topics, promoting high-quality international reporting and creating platforms that reach broad and diverse audiences.
Two recipients will each receive a $5,000 grant to report on the most pressing HIV/AIDS issues, with a focus on barriers to ending the epidemic. The grant supports travel and reporting in the field. Selected fellows will also be invited to attend the 21st International AIDS Conference, July 17 - 22, 2016, in Durban, South Africa.
The fellow may choose when to do their reporting, but must complete the field reporting work by February 1, 2016.
Pulitzer Center journalists and staff will mentor the recipient through the reporting process and help with external placement of the completed project.
The work will be featured in a Pulitzer Center-published magazine, along with the projects of other Center grantees. The print version will include photography, and the online version will include interactive and video elements.
Each member school in the College Consortium can submit up to two nominees to the Pulitzer Center for consideration.
Current Bloomberg School students and alumni who graduated between 2013 and 2015 may apply.
Students interested in applying may submit a student reporting fellowship application, including a 250-word project description and resume. Send email submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org. The fellowship application deadline for Bloomberg School students and recent alumni is September 17, 2015.
